Re: Homebrew electric bike from Poland

Hi.
This is not an electric bike. The battery is intended for lighting only. I wrote in the section about Non-standard, Human Powered Vehicles.

Re: Pictures of your recumbent

I'm very impressed indeed. And envious of your skill. It's so good to see a trike that's a comfortable size for a youngster. I do have a question, though. It relates to an experience I had some time ago. I notice that you don't appear to have used any clipped pedals. Have you decided that the chanc...

Re: Recumbent trike transport by car

The Collier rack looks like a good simple solution. One thing to consider is the length of the trike compared to the width of your car. If the trike sticks out past the sides of your car too much you can risk damaging it. My car has a 175 cm width, my trike has 220cm total width. It gives approxima...

Re: Recumbent trike transport by car

Thank you for your advice, but I think I'll go in this way. I think this is the easiest way of transportation. http://www.colliertechnologies.com/trike_carriers.html Load the trike onto the roof of the vehicle, it is impossible for me alone, so drops out. Could you use something like this but strapp...

Re: Recumbent trike transport by car

Thanks Bob and squeaker for suggestions.
Hmm. I am 167cm height and 58 kg weigh. In addition, I have a van - Xsara Picasso :) so, transport on the roof It's impossible :( .
Therefore I am looking for something on the hook.
Furthermore, I don't want too much to disassemble my machine for transport.

Recumbent trike transport by car

I have a question for you, how you transport your trikes by car. I use the "search machine : ) " but I found nothing. I am thinking about something like that: http://www.hitchrider.com/trikes.htm Of course my own performance by using something like that, with a little adaptation: http://ww...

I have about 4mm toe-in in my trike. I set this according to this:

Re: Pictures of your recumbent

maybe you have experimented with this already Yes, I did. And this is the best toe setting for me. If you set the toe setting a little bit 'toe out' (which you will only be able to do easily if the centre link has LH and RH threaded ball joints I try this, the centre link has LH and RH threaded bal...

I started 2 years ago, I read many articles on the Internet about recumbent tadpole trike. The main frame is built from stainless steel, it is very hard to treatment. The frame is made of 2 inch pipe wall thickness 1.5 mm. Front wheel hubs are adapted from the wheelchair's wheels. Wheel brake operat...
